My BGE XL is being delivered on Friday this week and I am super excited! A neighbor, who introduced me to bbq smoking many years ago, is getting married in a few weeks. We are hosting their 'returning home' party and I want to attempt a brisket. Each time I mention my intention my neighbor tells me to avoid it because a 'brisket is very hard to get right'. I'd be interested in thoughts and tips from the forum. Before I attempt this feat remember the first time I use the BGE in anger is for 40 guests this weekend and I am smoking a pork butt. I appreciate everyone's comments on that thread and especially the link to Elder Ward's blog entry on NC pulled pork I have asked the esteemed gentlemen for guidance on the size of the butt he smoked as I couldn't see any references to weight in the article.
I look forward to being active in this forum and thanks in advance for any comments.
